Recon - The Post LOST Watch

We wondered, the first time around, if recon was re-con as in to con again, or recon as in reconnaissance. What else will we see differently in hindsight?

Dr. Linus - The Post LOST Watch

(I'm a bit late on the uptake on this one, sorry. The days seem to run together when company is in town.) How does this episode play differently now that we know how it all comes out?

Sundown - The Post LOST Watch

This time around, we know this isn't a Sun-centric episode. What other previously-missed clues will we notice when we watch this episode again?

Emmy Nods for LOST!

Can LOST book-end the series with an Emmy win for its final season?! LOST picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama (along with Breaking Bad, Dexter, Mad Men, True Blood, and The Good Wife). Of these, I have seen The Good Wife. It is a great show, but it is no LOST. What is your opinion of the others?

Matthew Fox was nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series (together with Jon Hamm [Mad Men]; Kyle Chandler [Friday Night Lights]; Bryan Cranston [Breaking Bad]; Hugh Laurie [House M.D.]; and Michael C. Hall [Dexter]). While this was Foxy's best season, where is the love for Josh Holloway? I have seen a few episodes of House over the years, and Hugh Laurie is great - though I find the character mildly two dimensional. Haven't seen any of the other shows. Thoughts?

For Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, both Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson were recognized (along with John Slattery [Mad Men]; Aaron Paul [Breaking Bad]; Martin Short [Damages]; and Andre Braugher [Men of a Certain Age]). As thrilled as I am that O'Quinn and Emerson were nominated, they both deserved to be in the lead actor category. As I understand it, the actors determine which category to which they would like to be submitted. By choosing supporting actor, I suppose they improved their chances. Had they chosen lead actor, it would likely have bumped Foxy from the running, but would have opened the door for Jorge, Daniel and Naveen, who all had stellar years. And what about Nestor and (Henry) Ian? I guess the academy needs a category just for LOST supporting actors. Again, I have only seen one show, Men of a Certain Age. Andre Braugher is great, but I think Emerson ought to have this tied up, if not for this season, than for his entire body of work on LOST.

Surprise, surprise, the women were shut out. I know Elizabeth Mitchell didn't have enough screen time to warrant a nomination, but she still deserves one for the season five finale! Evangeline and Yunjin both had great years, and even Emilie's short screen time was notable.

What are your opinions of these nominations? Who was overlooked? What do you think of the other nominees?

Lighthouse - The Post LOST Watch

Even though I can't watch (sigh), I will continue to post each episode's thread so that anyone who chooses to, can discuss the episodes as you rewatch. Just remember to check back now and again to see if anyone else has posted to the thread.
